Onward and upward my friends! Uploading videos to Pluuck is now even easier. Already have videos on Vimeo? When launching a salvo (uploading a video) you now have the option to enter a Vimeo video ID and Pluuck will import the video automatically. How cool is that?!
Here are some optimal video compression settings when uploading Salvos to Pluuck:
- H.264 works best. But the following formats will work as well: 3g2, 3gp, 3gp2, 3gpp, asf, asx, avi, divx, mts, m2t, m2ts, m2v, m4v, mkv, mov, mp4, mpe, mpeg, mpg, ogg, wmv.
- Data rates are best between 2000 kbits/sec to 5000 kbits/sec.
- Audio is best at 320kbps / 44.100 kHz using the AAC codec
- Deinterlace (if you have the ability)
Here is a preset if you’re using Compressor:

Here’s a cool way to make text float on a wavy surface. Here’s the scene file so you can break it down.
I know the “a” comes out of the water a bit but I don’t have time to render out the fixed version. (at work… shhhhh)
